We all know Agathyar (Agastya) had a part to play in Ramayana. But was it the same Agathyar who lived in Tamil Nadu 5000 years back as 1st Siddhar? His famous writing is Agathyar 12000 songs & his line about God was "சக்தியே பராபரமே ஒன்றே தெய்வம்"

    Yes, both of them are the same Agastya. He appears in many Puranas, the Ramayana and is also credited for creating our beautiful language Thamizh... – user15963 Aug 15 '18 at 9:00
  • @HayagreevRam I thought Skanda gave Tamil to Agastya. – DirghaChintayanti Aug 15 '18 at 9:05
  • @SudarshanaSuri Yes you’re right. I meant popularising... I used the wrong word... sorry – user15963 Aug 15 '18 at 9:13
  • It was Lord Muruga who created Tamil language and his disciple was Agathyar. – Parabrahman Jyoti Aug 15 '18 at 10:02
  • The saptrishis are immortal, so no surprise that agastya of ramayana and the tamil one are same. – Anisha Aug 15 '18 at 10:04
